Jacobsen has launched the all-new Truckster XD heavy-duty utility vehicle, replacing the Cushman Turf-Truckster. Both Jacobsen and Cushman are owned by Textron Inc.

The Truckster XD boasts a class-leading 3,550-lb. standard payload capacity, supported by a bed made with steel up to 75% thicker than comparable boxes and 20% more volume, according to the company.

The gasoline model provides 32.5 hp and 51.6 ft.-lbs. of torque and the diesel provides 24.8 hp and 52.7 ft.-lbs. of torque.

The Truckster XD was built to handle the daily rigors of a maintenance crew, and the cabin has 25% more room than the competition, Jacobsen stated. The vehicle is designed for turf management.
